   Jan-21-17 E H E van Woelderen vs C E A Dupre, 1888
 
tpstar: Black to Play and Win after 34. Nf3. Nice centralized Bishops after 31 ... Bd5, then also nicely centralized pieces leading to the end.

tpstar: <mistreaver> That is an excellent article about swindles, and you should submit it to your local chess periodical for publication. Note that right before Jesus, it should be, "AND THEN IT HAPPENS" instead of "THAN" there. Some other famous swindles to consider: Bird vs ...

tpstar: There is a stock trap in this opening worth mention: 1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Bc4 Qh4+ 4. g3?! fxg3 5. Nf3? [DIAGRAM] 5 ... g2+! 6. Nxh4 gxh1=Q+ wins a Rook. After 4. Kf1 Black often answers 5. Nf3 with 5 ... Qh5.
 
   Jan-20-17 Khmelnitsky vs G Kuzmin, 1989
 
tpstar: Very nice R&P endgame - 66. Rf8 a2 67. Ra8 Rb1+ & 68 ... a1=Q, or 66. Rxb5 Kxb5 67. Kb1 Kc4 68. Ka2 Kd3 69. Kxa3 Ke3 70. Kb3 Kxf3 71. Kc3 Kg3 72. Kd3 Kxh3 73. Ke3 Kg2 wins.

tpstar: The hills are alive without the sound of Muzychuk.
 
   Jan-18-17 A Guest vs J Mason, 1887
 
tpstar: <crwynn> Thank you very much! Missed it.
 
   Jan-17-17 H Buckle vs Loewenthal, 1851
 
tpstar: Black to Play and Win after 26. Kh2. 36. Bxf3 gxf3 37. Kg1 becomes an instructive K&P ending: [DIAGRAM] The Pf3 and the Ph3 can protect each other, provided they wait until White's King attacks one of them to move; not 37 ... h2+? 38. Kxh2 or 37 ... f2+? 38. Kxf2 botching it. ...
 
   Jan-17-17 K Leffmann vs Zukertort, 1877
 
tpstar: If the final position was White to play instead, then 59. Kb2 Kd2 60. a3 (60. Ka1 c1=Q#) c1=Q+ 61. Ka2 Kc2/Kc3 62. axb4 Qb2#, or 61 ... bxa3 62. b4 Qb2#. Black to play wins with 59 ... Kc3 60. a3/a4 bxa3 61. b4 Kb3 62. Kd2 Kb2 (The Squeeze) etc. White erred with 49. Rxb6? as you ...
 
   Jan-17-17 F Madan vs J Keynes, 1874
 
tpstar: Black to Play and Win after 12. Bh4. Black to Play and Win after 16. fxg3.
 
   Jan-17-17 V Green vs Steinitz, 1864
 
tpstar: Tripled Pawns like this are called the Irish Center. The final position is an instructive K&P endgame for juniors and students: [DIAGRAM] Black wins due to the Opposition, thus 38 ... f6! 39. Kf3 f5 40. exf5 Kxf5 0-1 (instead of 38 ... f5?? 39. exf5 Kxf5 40. Kf3 drawing). The finish ...
